Favorite 25 Songs from 2000+

From a countdown in which I participated, here are my favorite 25 songs since 2000. Although the countdown had no rule, my choices tended to be pop-oriented. Below is the list of my 25 songs. I actually ranked 69 songs, and I’ll try to put the best of the rest in another post.

These are my favorite songs, not necessarily my favorite artists. I have Fergie at number two and I can’t think of another Fergie song that even comes close to my countdown.

The list:

1. Yeah! by Usher featuring Lil Jon & Ludacris
2. Big Girls Don’t Cry (Personal) by Fergie
3. Say It Right by Nelly Furtado
4. Crazy by Gnarls Barkley
5. We Are Young by fun. featuring Janelle Monae
6. All Of Me by John Legend
7. Happy by Pharrell Williams
8. Get Lucky by Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams
9. F**kin’ Perfect by Pink
10. I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas
11. Can’t Fight The Moonlight by LeAnn Rimes
12. Rolling In The Deep by Adele
13. No One by Alicia Keys
14. Royals by Lorde
15. It Feels So Good by Sonique
16. F**k You (Forget You) by Cee Lo Green
17. Viva La Vida by Coldplay
18. Don’t Know Why by Norah Jones
19. Brokenhearted by Karmin
20. Don’t Tell Me by Madonna
21. In Da Club by 50 Cent
22. The Game Of Love by Santana featuring Michelle Branch
23. Grenade by Bruno Mars
24. Family Affair by Mary J. Blige
25. TiK ToK by Ke$ha

Two artists appear twice. Pharrell Williams is at #7 and at #8 while Cee Lo Green is at #4 (with Gnarls Barkley) and at #16.

Opinions welcome.
